Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 11656

(1856 - 1943)

Riva Bella 

Handcoloured soft ground


A nice impression on wove paper, signed in pencil, numbered 3/4, annotated "couleurs", titled and dated. 

Aside to his interpretation's work, Emile Sulpis shows his times in a series of small original intimate prints. The female figure holds a central place: bathing scenes, languid models, sports and domestic activities are recurring subjects in his paper work. In view of he annotations in the margins, it is a personal production, probably not intended for the public. Emile Sulpis worked on different engraving processes, in a "print's kitchen" combining several techniques and multiplying the states.

Plate: 100 x 140 mm.

Sheet: 140 x 185 mm.
